Common Shoulder Conditions in Renton

Our professional medical team here in Renton will be able to discern what is causing shoulder pain or discomfort.

Some common shoulder conditions in Renton include:

  • Arthritis. When the cartilage that cushions the shoulder joint wears down over time, it can cause inflammation and pain.
  • Bursitis and Tendonitis. A small sac filled with fluid (the bursa) both protects the tendons and cushions the upper arm bone. If it becomes impaired, it may cause friction in that area of the shoulder.
  • Dislocation. The shoulder is a ball-and-socket joint. Shoulder the upper arm (ball) pop out of place (within the socket), it is known as shoulder dislocation.
  • Separation. If the shoulder blade becomes detached from the collarbone or, more commonly, the surrounding ligaments become damaged, it causes a serious injury known as shoulder separation.
  • Biceps Tendon Rupture. Although the bicep runs the length of the upper arm, it connects near the shoulder. A rupture most often occurs due to a sudden damaging impact, such as abruptly catching something heavy.
  • Rotator Cuff Tears. The shoulder is comprised of four different groupings of stabilizing muscles and tendons that allow for shoulder movement, including rotation. A tear in this area is usually indicated by a deep recurring pain, reduced reach, or general arm weakness.

Considering the complicated nature of the shoulder joint, there are many potential conditions that could arise if proper steps are not taken. They range in severity, so if you are experiencing shoulder pain in Renton, please do contact our experts as soon as possible.
